Local foundation supporting several projects

Kenwick on the Lake Park is among three projects to receive funds

Kenwick on the Lake, a park in Bright's Grove, is one of the projects being partially funded by the Judith & Norman Alix Foundation.

The Judith & Norman Alix Foundation is advancing a total of $27,000 to three Lambton County-based capital projects aimed at benefitting the community at large.

The Foundation’s board has approved:

—$5,000 to Gallery in the Grove for lighting upgrades and enhancements in its two main galleries.

—$10,000 to the Sarnia Concert Association for the refurbishment of its Yamaha Grand Piano. The piano is a community resource for theatre groups and entertainment in Sarnia-Lambton.

—$12,000 to the Kenwick on the Lake Park Committee for solar powered lighting as part of an overall upgrade project – long-term sustainability.

Applications for the 2016 spring intake of the Judith & Norman Alix Foundation will be received beginning in February.

To be eligible for funding, projects must be located in Lambton County. Funding requests are only considered for capital projects. Additional eligibility criteria can be found on the Foundation’s website, www.jnaf.ca.

Over its 30 year history the Judith & Norman Alix Foundation has advanced approximately $4 million to over 10 community projects including:

Withdrawal Management Services at Bluewater Health; the installation of artificial turf at Norm Perry Park in Sarnia; the construction of the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery; and the purchase of rare artifacts for the Lambton Heritage Museum.
